World Class Theatre on your Doorstep
Founded by Sir Peter Hall, and modelled on the original Elizabethan Rose Theatre on London’s Bankside, Rose Theatre is the largest producing theatre in South West London.
Our vision is to be a world-class producing theatre for our part of London and beyond, which is famous for drama, fully engaged with the local community and financially sustainable.
We aim to:
Our artistic programme is at our core. Creating a combination of in-house productions and co-productions each season, we produce work that reflects the highest standards of artistic excellence and attracts celebrated actors and directors.
In addition to its productions, the Rose undertakes a high-quality learning and participation programme, educating the people of all ages and backgrounds in various aspects of dramatic art, nurturing emerging talent, and serving as a cultural hub for communities in Kingston and beyond.
At The Rose, our community sits at the heart of all that we do. So after an open consultation with hundreds of our audience members, we have created a manifesto to express the key values that we all share.
